The paper analyzes the reasonability of using an off-grid hybrid power supply system or in other words a local grid for sparsely populated areas as well as the necessary components selection and price development of such system. Typical consumers are selected and all estimations and calculations are based on them. Consumer profiles are set and analyzed as well as different elements of the local power supply grid and the possibility of connecting to the traditional grid. Estonian example is used in this paper as the country lies relatively north and has some remote areas, where local power supply grids can be implemented. All prices in the paper are derived from the Estonian example. Necessity of further study is proposed.
